I love those demolished cars that have been placed on the medians around town over the last few weeks. They are sober reminders of the fatal consequences of distracted driving.
Looking at those mangled vehicles, it's easy to imagine the pandemonium and horror of the original accident scene and how much sorrow and loss the victims' families felt then and probably still suffer though every day. I take my hat off to those individuals in our city who were responsible for launching the education and enforcement "Driven 2 Distraction?" campaign.
Since distracted driving is such a huge problem these days, maybe the city ought to consider expanding this effort to include harsh reminders at spots where people and bicyclists have been run over. Something like painting outlines of bodies on the sidewalk. In keeping with the wrecked automobiles, it would be more impactful than the officer in the pink bunny costume we see every time the city wants to remind drivers to be on the lookout for pedestrians.
